All of the above is true.

On our 9406-510, I found the autotuner to be essentially worthless.  We had 
to monitor the various stats and make adjustments over time, as you 
suggest.  The situation on the 310 was the same.

Then we migrated to the 9406-720.  My IBM var told me that autotuner worked 
well, so I turned it on.

It has worked so well  that I've set virtually everything to *CALC and 
simply let the system mangage itself

This thing is so fast it's scary.  Batch jobs that used to run in hours now 
take minutes.  Interactive response times are, quite frankly, amazing, 
particularly on AR lookup over LARGE customers.

I iz impressed.
